  • 56 Wagon ????

    The upper tail gate on the bottom sides is what looks like might have been plastic held with 2 #8 sheet metal screws. WHAT GOES ON THERE???
    I bought all the hardware from SASCO last May plus a bottom tail gate.

    As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

    Do you have a Pinehurst, Parkview or Pellham? A picture of the affected area would be helpful.

      The outer frame (shell) of the upper tail gate, it is the same, 1954 to 1959 and made of formed steel, if you are talking about a car you bought with unknown history, that would be a different story than an NOS tailgate.

      Maybe the FO fibreglassed it!

        There is a indention and 2 screw holes it is just like the ones at the top that the hinges screw into. But the bottom 2 holes had what was left of plastic held on with 2 screws. And it is a Parkview.

          I have a 56 Pelham and it has a metal cover held on by two screws that cover the lock. Also on each side of the top door(bottom) there is a set of hard plastic ,(I will call them Bumpers for lack of a better term) that keeps the door from moving back and forth when shut. I see them for sale from time to time on E-Bay

            That's really what they are - bumpers. They're made of nylon.

            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
